'Nova recruit going to new high school


Villanova recruit Daniel Ochefu, a senior forward who came to this country from Nigeria, is no longer at the Westtown School.

Sources confirmed that he has withdrawn following what has been described as a minor internal disciplinary action. Ochefu is now attending Downingtown East High, where it is expected he will soon graduate.

The sources have indicated that Ochefu is still going to end up on the Main Line.

Attempts to reach Ochefu were unsuccessful. Wildcats coach Jay Wright isn’t allowed to talk because of NCAA rules, and Westtown coach Seth Berger declined to comment.
